Based on the discussion on today's call, I will add the following  
editors note to Widget Signature in section 6, Algorithms [1]:


This Widget Signature  specification relies on XML Signature 1.1 and  
the Web Applications WG is also seeking feedback on required  
algorithms for widget signatures, in particular which algorithms  
should be required in addition to RSAwithSHA256.

The XML Security WG has not yet achieved consensus on required  
algorithms in XML SIgnature 1.1, in particular whether to mandate  
ECDSAwithSHA256. The XML Security WG is requesting feedback on the  
FPWD of XML SIgnature 1.1.

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch
